Is it July already?

I am back in work yesterday after a week off!

Spent a load of time playing Lego Batman 2 on PS3, I went for the platinum trophy and got it just an hour ago! Lego games are reasonably easy but can take 40 plus hours to really finish completely! I'm also up to level 14 which I have been working to get to for ages! The idea if getting stuck on level 13 did not sit well with me! It show if I put effort into something set myself a goal I can get to it. A few months ago I was happy to reach 1,000 trophies now I'm at over 1,600!

I could do with trying to finish off some Xbox 360 games as well! I've set myself a goal of completing Halo 1, ODST, Reach and 4 BEFORE the collection is out on Xbox One as I don't think I would want to play 360 versions after that! (I know reach and ODST are not in the pack but its just to tie up loose ends!)

Its 1st of July so that means new Games with gold day on 360 today its Gotham City Imposters! Supposed to be good, but it is FREE to play on steam, so why they would give you a game that's free (ok £10 on xbox live) seems odd unless you get some of the paid content which would make sense!

Problem with something like PS+ or Games with Gold is you will inevitably get a month that's not so good and others that are amazing. I look at it as they don't need to give you anything so its a win anyway and even if you have some of the games they offer, they may be plenty of others who don't have it.

well I finished Jak & Daxter on vita today, only realised the other day one of the trophies has changed slightly over ps3 version so no platinum for me! basicly one of the tasks you need to use the touch screen controls and from what I read on the internet you can't just do the event again, will try once. But I'm also starting a 2nd play though just to get the trophy and platinum (plats are worth 12 bronze trophies!)

One thing this game has proved is hand held systems are not the sort of systems for full console titles they need to be built around them. The frustration from playing this on the vita was a lot! Problem is it is an old PS2 title which means dodgy controls and hideous camera angles as we had back in the day which now are annoying!

sort of proves why proper games will always be best on a proper screen not on a handheld!

waiting on the new set of plus titles today plus I played the Xbox One games with gold title as well today! so not bad, now must go I have a red shell with someone's name on it, mario kart 8 is amazing!

got an email from Virgin Media saying I can have 152 Mbps upgrade in effect now. did not really look at the email properly until today but it looks like I needed to manually accept the speed upgrade my guess is they will move people over gradually but people who want it sooner they will do so if requested.

So in a few days I will be 152 Mbps up from 120 Mbps! When you think that makes my internet 304 times as fast as it was when I first got broadband! All in what 12 or 13 years? At this rate 1,0000 Mbps ethernet ports on the new consoles won't be enough! Although I guess new systems will be out by then!

speed test shows I can get 160.99 mbps! which is not bad! which is roughly 20 MB a second. Wonder how long until Virgin offer 200 Mbps !
